PARIS (AP) - Pete Sampras says Roger Federer already earned the
title of best tennis player in history, even before winning the French Open.

Sampras tells The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Los Angeles that he's happy for Federer, who won his first championship at Roland Garros on Sunday. It's Federer's 14th Grand Slam singles title, tying Sampras' record.

Says Sampras: "I'm sure he's going to go on and win a lot more."

Sampras retired after winning the 2002 U.S. Open.

Says Sampras: "Now that he's won in Paris, I think it just more solidifies his place in history as the greatest player that played the game, in my opinion."
